WASHINGTON — There was nothing subtle about the TV commercial in 2010.
As Gov. Ted Strickland held a hunting rifle, an announcer said that as a member of the U.S. House in 1994, Republican gubernatorial candidate John Kasich “voted to take away our gun rights — a major reason the National Rifle Association gave Strickland an A-plus rating.”
Fast-forward to today, and the same Ted Strickland, who faces a contested U.S. Senate Democratic primary race in March against Cincinnati City Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld, has become an advocate of the type of gun restrictions he once opposed.
